The Closing the Gap targets were agreed and adopted by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2008. All Australian governments – commonwealth, state and territory – have committed to achieve the Closing the Gap targets.

The Federal Government this week released the seventh Closing the Gap Report covering data collected in 2013-2013. The report shows that although there has been some improvement in education and health outcomes for Indigenous Australians, most Closing the Gap targets are not on track to be met.
